King Crimson
Red Album

Harmonic rhythym notes jump across 5th power chord music riffing motifs range genre
techniques and play from rock to heavy metal music in an assortment of random jazz beat
music. It has long been typical of much of their freelance rock careers often too.

This group is noted to have influenced Black Sabbath and have in turn produced tribute of
what a generation produced as death and black metal music 30 years later.

Undoubtely and without question, the aesthetic music of the progressive rock genre cannot
side by substance and ideology and spirituality as if comparing Burzum or Sentenced name it to

King Crimson show in older radio rock style, the destruction of limitations of enduring catchy
music, remove popular conventions and attempt experiment in Red. Notable electric guitar
feedback looped room acoustic resonance techniques are used as templates, produce a sonic
resonance and lead melodic development, often alike keyboard orchestra sounds lead
atmosphere in contrast. This is true not only to Red but the technique is typical of their
overall music aesthetic over spanning a lot of their career despite regular staff changes.

Violent minimalism is eeriely present for starters as a lead guitar tone.
Sonic soundscapes are carved since sustained notes often ring.
They ring and intensify by doubled guitars in crushing distortion.

The whole is presented to you with what is half- followed by whole interval melodic song playing
typically yet of the jazz or perhaps rock tradition of song composing.

Vocal songs as popular formatted compositions show movement rather than
immediate resolution in music.
Songs show in contrast another method of composition as opposed to the
conventional  rock major chord resolutions of popular music.

If you went to a theater to watch music performance, love me do rock didn't cut it anymore.
Redundant and eventually contradicting itself in political dogma, the rock format remained
the same anyhow, guitar bass drum and singing lyrics remained as the medium
proved adequate enough to express a much wider range of music than what the format was originally intended for.

The mythological, lyrical content of King Crimson continues a long legacy, reminiscent of much
older works of  this band typically alike what they continue as so-called progressive rock to this day.

Exceptional guitar works can be found still therein parts of songs in albums scarcely if you dare give time.

I found this last year:


As if paying tribute to ancients, the rythym is very rich, guitars produce large sustain, like DBC in ways. A power chord motif leads order into disorder as the leitmotif is repeated inconsistently in between chaotic passages of large intervals giving sense of horror.

Also, Robert Fripp was noted to have invented minimalist music using his electric guitar a tape feedback recorder and distortion.
